you know who this is? >> tom brokaw of? >> looks like will ferrell. >> how about this? didn't know who this is? >> the situation. >> is a character in a sleazy reality show but more near him then politicians did >> "the situation." john: thiss one reason they are dumb older rock concerts. many of the young people had no clue of them. it is a fine young people don't vote. most of them don't pay attention and will be less likely to vote. but i take heat for saying that saying some people shouldn't vote is sacrilegious, but when economists agree with me, author of the myth of the rational voter, why democracies choose bad policies. because voters are not rational? >> exactly. john: people want to do the right thing. >> people do want to do the right thing, but that doesn't mean they are doing it. if you try to do the right thing without knowing what you are doing you can easily messed things up. john: so voters don't have an incentive to get informed? >> what would happen if you voted at random? the same thing that happens to you otherwise. nothing. you are just one little vote out of mil
. >> one more question for you, robert. we heard tom brokaw. is the partisan redistricting fair? >> absolutely. i think tom is right on point there. it is not just republicans here that for the most part have their own constituency. i think also the democrats, as well. this is a circular firing squad and both sides are to blame for this hyperpartisanship that we have here in washington, d.c. both sides are emboldined by their core constitchancies and that is reinforced on both sides. they only hear what they want to hear. they have their own twisted version of the constitution instead of compromising like the way it should have been done many, many months ago. >> thanks to you both. >> thanks. >>> coming up political prediction for 2013. new year and new hope for bipartisanship on capitol hill?

will look like. joining me, nbc's tom brokaw. presidential historian doris goodwin, john meachum, david brooks of the "new york times" and chuck todd. all coming up next. >> i think most of the blame still has to go to the republicans. they've had a brain freeze since the election. they have no strategy. they don't know what they want, and they haven't decided what they want. but if i had to fault president obama, i would say sometimes he has governed like a visitor from a morally superior civilization. he comes in here, and he will not -- he'll talk with boehner. he won't talk with the other republicans. he hasn't built their trust. boehner actually made a pretty serious concession, $800 billion in tax revenues. probably willing to go up on rates. but the trust wasn't there to get that done. if the president wants to get stuff done over the next four years, it's got to be a lot more than making the intellectual concessions. it's got to get to the place where republicans say, ok, we'll take a risk. this guy won't screw us. they don't feel that right now. >> chuck, just your reading of t

[laughter] >> i loved what you were saying. the have a poster that says, what were you do if you were not afraid? you said that question, it is a game changer. >> it all over facebook, we have all of these posters that are very inspiring and they really and forman drive the culture. there are things like, perceived to be bold, think wrong, move fast and break things. >> what does it think wrong mean that? >> forget about convention. look at the white board and come up with something. if you do not like the way across swap works, change it. dixit, change it. do not think in conventional ways. -- fix it. change it. break the mold. follow whenever your vision is. take risks. .f you fail, it
